What is it about?

Research on self-healing coatings has grown rapidly in recent years, as evidenced by a large number of published patents, books, and articles. However, there are few reports on review articles of the self-healing anti-corrosion coating. To this end, this review systematically reports the latest developments in this research area. The self-healing coating through reversible reactions is not the focus of this article, and the related content can refer to the recently published review. Compared with recent reviews focusing only on microcapsules, this review provides a comprehensive discussion on the preparation, self-healing properties and anti-corrosion mechanisms of the organic micro/nano container-based, inorganic micro/nano container-based and microvascular network-based self-healing coating.
